Color play is one thing I love about indie-dyed yarn. (The other is the dyers who create signature yarn by how they speak with color.) How the colors in a skein of indie-dyed yarns play out depends on a number of factors.
This is a short video on how the color play developed when knitting a cowl from this skein of fingering weight sock yarn. It is knitted first in-the-round (ITR), then flat. I use a repeat of 12 stitches, first seed stitch, then a slip stitch, 4 stockinette stitches, and a slip stitch. I was inspired by a blanket knitted by Frank Lloyd Wright’s wife.
Yarn: Virginia Fingering from Urban Girls Yarn, 90% SW Merino, 10% nylon, 480 yds / 125g. Skyline Pigeon.
This one will get ribbon once I get to Britex in San Francisco. A fun leap from this very neutral to what I ended up with!
